Yes, Virginia, Los Angeles Does Have A Fashion Week

Where: Los Angeles, CA

Just like dineLA's recently extended Restaurant Week, Los Angeles Fashion Week has turned into more of a Fashion Month. We're the first to admit that Los Angeles is no New York when it comes to carrying fashion heft, but there's talent floating around the 405, especially in the Downtown Fashion District. Since early October, various shopping events, trunk shows, previews, and the like, have been taking place around town in celebration of the city's well-known and emerging designers.

Edgy denim label Rock & Republic recently held a collaboration launch party with Essie, and former Robertson Boulevard super-boutiques Madison and Diavolina celebrated their West Third flagship store launch last Thursday with stylists and respected denim designers Emily Current and Merritt Elliott of Current/Elliott. But as Los Angeles is all about what's new and what's next, one of the more anticipated events coming up this month is Gen Art's Fresh Faces in Fashion show on Thursday, October 29th from 7:00 to 11:00 PM.

The festivities kick off with an Accessory Designer Pre-Reception, followed by the show and after-party. Where the after-after party is you'll have to figure out yourself once the leather and stiletto-clad revelers disperse for the evening. The even will be hosted by Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory and 8 Simple Rules fame, with complimentary wines and cocktails to keep the fashion masses in good spirits.

Tickets to the event are broken down into totem-pole like tiers, which is pretty much how everything functions in L.A. Seated tickets are $85 for non-Gen Art members, $75 for members, and those who have "Producer Level" memberships get two complimentary tickets. Standing tickets are $65 for non-members, $55 for members, and "Platinum Members" are comped two tickets. You can purchase them online by clicking here. With Halloween only a couple of days later, it will be interesting to see if the local fashion elite pull out any freakish stops for the event. People watching is guaranteed to be at a premium.
